Marie Grujicic

Paris native, Marie studied Theater, Dance and Art. After performing all across Europe and becoming a certified Jazz Dance teacher in France, she was hired as a soloist dancer in a famous Parisian Cabaret, she then moved to the United States to perform with the U.S troupe at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
She also performed with Cirque du Soleil for over 2 years and is now Creative Consulting for them.
In 2016 she was fortunate to be the Associate Creative Director of their 4th annual show One Night for One Drop by Cirque du Soleil raising $6.5 million to provide sustainable access to clean water in sub-saharan countries facing critical issues.
Turning to Yoga as a professional movement artist was organic, discovering that yoga can heal your body and help you find peace and stillness away from the turmoils of the entertainment industry, made it so natural for her to want to share her Yoga love with others and guide them to their own Yoga bliss.
She was first introduced to Yoga through the Bikram style in 2007 and when moving to L.A. in 2009 she started studying at Santa Monica Power Yoga.
She trained her 200Hrs at Socal Hot Yoga under Jackie Penta and learned Sumits Hot Vinyasa flow series. Marie is currently in Bryan Kest Power Yoga training.

Why I love to practice in the heat?
The heat, whether I am practicing Ashtanga first series, Sumits vinyasa flow or Yin, gives me wings! I love its intensity which helps make my practice a moving meditation.
